Stephen Ministry

 God's Love in Action

What is Stephen Ministry? Stephen Ministries is a not-for-profit Christian educational organization that provides training and resources to thousands of congregations worldwide; our church has been involved since 1997. We have trained gifted lay people to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to individuals who are experiencing difficulties in their lives. The identity of those receiving care and what takes place in each caring relationship remain private.

 

Stephen Ministers reach out with God's love to people who are hurting - both congregation members and nonmembers alike.  We all experience challenges in life, times when we could benefit from the support of a caring Christian friend. Stephen Ministers are ready to provide the emotional and spiritual care we need when faced with a crisis or difficulty such as:

​​

  • ​incarceration

  • aging

  • birth, adoption, miscarriage or infertility

  • a chronic illness

  • relocation

  • recovery after an accident or disaster

  • loss of loved one

  • hospitalization

  • divorce or separation

  • loneliness

  • spiritual crisis

  • unemployment

  • a terminal illness
